I recently had the opportunity to order a photo collage print to review thanks to PNI and The Product Review Place. In doing this I learned that the same company supports many of the online photo ordering processes. It isn’t a big surprise but something I never thought about. PNI supports the on line ordering for CVS, Sam’s Club, Walmart Canada, and Costco.
I have never order a collage print before and didn’t know how it would turn out at all. I thought it might look a little cheesy all being on the same print but found the opposite to be true. It looks fabulous.
I ordered my collage print through Sam’s Club. I already had pictures uploaded to Sam’s Club so I just had to select the pictures I wanted for my print. I then selected the size and layout of the collage print. I was very impressed with the pricing. I then kept shuffling the pictures until I got the layout I wanted. I would have liked to been able to place the pictures where I wanted to put them but the shuffle finally got me to a layout I liked. The picture quality is really great. I will note that I did have to cut the edges off my 12″x16″ print since it was printed a larger sheet of paper on and not trimmed down to size.
So without further ado, here is the [edited] print I created and ordered:
Why is this budget friendly? Printing a collage print like this is a great savings over the collage prints that picture studios offer. I made this collage a print of newborn pictures of Little Dude to frame and hang in our stairwell. I am convinced it is going to look just as good as the picture studio prints of his sisters and no one will be the wiser!
